quayle. >> senator, i served with jack kennedy. i knew jack kennedy, jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no jack kennedy. >> benson won easily, but dukakis lost putting our scoreboard at 1-1-1, but since then they've been strangely predictive of november. the correlation is much stronger than presidential debate winner and election winner. it starts in '92, the chaotic debate between senator gore, vice president gail and admiral stockdale. gore won, as did clinton. record, 2-1-1. in '96 gore debated senator jack kemp. gore narrowly won that and so did clinton. record 3-1-1. in 2000 and '04, dick cheney dispatched his opponents. and in '08 palin outdid expectations but biden clearly won as did obama pushing the record to 6-1-1. five times in a row and six out of eight that the winner of the vp debate has gone on to win the election. various people in the media have wanted to declare this war over hundreds of times. no

before. now you're jack kennedy. >> the two men at the top of the ticket will meet on tuesday at hofstra university in new york. we know of course it's a town hall format because there had been a lot of speculation over what questions might be asked. it's always interesting to see the public put in questions to the candidates instead of just the moderate during this case. >> yes, some people say the moderator was more beneficial to biden last night. not quite sure if that was true. >> what's hard for us over here is that the debate which is at 9:00 eastern time for us starts at 2:00 in the morning. so we have to wake up and try and rely on accounts. >> what is amazing to me is how warmly they greet each other and behind the smiles, they're saying i'll beat your brains out. >> we do the same thing, don't we? >> yes. this is a total act. behind it, we hate each other. fortunately, we do like our next guest, head of research at credit suisse 3r50iprivate bank. as an investor as we watch the maturation of the u.s. election campaign, what actually matters some. >> the fiscal cliff. obviously
